As an observer I had to write a report that is the evidence of my perception of that panel.

…  I proposed our doctorate program to build on this experience and attain this high standard of pre-event communication with external evaluators and panel members via not only book of abstracts but also framing the conference with positions that formulate starting points from the institutional side and key supervisors.

This was my second CA2RE paper presented and my third CA2RE conference. They serve to energise my research and take it in different directions, both through the very generous and targetted feedback on my papers, but also as importantly through attending other presentations, both similar and different to my research trajectory. It allows me to contextualise my research and position it within an international context of design research.

The contact with many different lines of work gives a sense of security for developing my ongoing research. Its was very important for me to understand the amplitude of the works, from studies of the sun frequencies to the relationship with choreography, or a more technical analysis on architectural typologies and consequently HOW to built a doctoral discourse around them and also its graphical translation.

I am an early stage researcher and it was very useful to have this extremely rich overview of so many different works and approaches that undoubtedly will inspire my ongoing investigation at many levels. It was also possible to deepen the understanding of possibilities within design driven research in order to support the investigation’s discourse over methods.

The position papers from the partner institutions were an excellent idea though the quality varied, and I particularly enjoyed the opening session where epistemological questions were discussed. My own panel was excellent and helped me sharpen my focus. Seeing other presentations gave me insight into the range of research being carried out internationally.

For me it is not possible to explain the clear strategy of the incorporation of these CA2RE + experiences into my overall approach.. I think that the real impact is about the sharpening of tools, both pedagogical and related to personal research engagements, it is about thinking “outside of the box” and about courage to step out of established forms of knowledge building and knowledge exchange.

The introductory workshop discussion, aligned around approaches, methodologies and techniques, was perfectly articulated and defined lingering topics with great clarity.

Feedback, questions and dialogue with panel members revealed weak points (e.g. focus, positioning, clarity for broader audience) and possible directions; discussions, other presentations, exhibition and workshop exposed a great variety of approaches and methodologies.

I attended a presentation as an observer (‘A Safe Space. Architecture and Preparedness in the Era of Uncertainty’) in which the comments of the panel members caught my attention: they all approached the role of design from different and complementary perspectives. Actually, everyone saw the role of design from their own experience and area of ??knowledge, and thus offered the candidate a very complete panoramic reflection.

I will continue to support the theoretical, practical and institutional relevance of this kind of research and of the related initiatives. Thematically I will go deeper into the agency of practice trying also to introduce my work on “Media Agency” to the community of the design driven research. And I will write in the next months a paper on the relevance of this research.

The capacity of researchers to open up space emancipating it from the mere traditional conception of design as merely linked to construction. The researchers, presenters, and panelists discussed a wider agency of architecture. This agency was shown through the focus on design practices and not just discussing the content of the research. Even if some PhD-projects were missing a generative use of practices or were in a seminal stage of research, the discussions were often focused on design practices motivating the research to find an own practice. This focus was very clear in the keynotes presentations (Tattara, Krumwiede, Lehnerer) and in the related discussion.

I think that the evidence was also visible in how the presentations were almost all focused on expressing approaches, methods and techniques more than in the past events.

The event helped to clarify ourselves which critical point of discussion we should address in the next conference. For instance a DDR process-oriented research methodology in which individual knowledge and (inter)disciplinar context should be more focused, developed, investigated and expressed in their mutual interdependence. Also a crucial node refers to ortodoxy and heteronomy of DDR approaches (more in architecture that in arts maybe). Last about the way in which we evaluate and train doctoral research when we expose artefacts as results of the research itself (buildings/models/drawings).

We will share the results and impact with ELIA’s working group artistic research and will invite them to be even more closely related to the event starting in Hamburg.

To me the evidence is a crowd that stays – this number seems very stable and that is a sure sign in an online event. This crowd could be larger and I would recommend we work on that aspect.

Preparing the presentation is a beneficial process of self-organizing for research; while, the discussion with panel profs is a reflection and thinking; both make me more clear about my research.

The evidence is in the sharpness and precision of my formulations, which is at the benefit of the very restricted time frame during these online sessions, where we have to miss all the other formal and informal talks with the candidates and colleagues during coffee breaks, lunches, etc… This evidence has been confirmed by Enrico Miglietta, with whom I could have a conversations after this online presentation.

The discussion after the 2.6 session and at the workshop with Johan Van Den Berghe. The two occasions provided the situation when an evaluator puts forward his own practice or opinion as an argument.

The set up of the discussion during a PhD presentation about the role of drawing: as a revealing process vs a generative tool and approach for the design driven research.
